Winter in July

We held our Winter in July marathon movie event last Friday from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m., and 35 teens attended! It was crazy, but a lot of fun for everyone. We watched cold-weather movies, including The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Cool Runnings. During the movies, we did crafts and trivia. I bought a bunch of hats on clearance at the end of winter, so a lot of people won them as prizes throughout the event. We also ate a lot! Our snacks included hot chocolate with marshmallows, chips, candy canes, and lollipops. Around 6:00, we had dinner, which was ramen noodle cups, bread and butter, tangerines, carrots with dip, lemonade, and homemade brownies for dessert. It was a lot of fun...maybe we should celebrate summer in January!

Everyone had the opportunity to paint an ornament or ceramic figure.

Here's another table working on their painting.

Some people wore their winter clothes!
